Thoroughly surveys the history of Chinese painting during the turbulent late Qing dynasty through a presentation of some 150 works, including numerous landscape compositions and depictions of flowers, animals and human figures. Detailed individual profiles of the 60 featured artists augment five essays discussing stylistic trends and patterns of patronage at Beijing's imperial court and in such regional centers as Shanghai and Canton, the effect of political instability on artistic production during the period, and the revitalization of the traditional "Three Accomplishments" (painting, calligraphy and seal carving) by Zhao Zhiqian (1829-1884) and Wu Changshuo (1844-1927).
